organization of the student body. It provides a means for students
to communicate ideas and problems to the administration and for
school officials to pass their desires to the student body. Programs
sponsored by the S.C.A. consisted of school dances, presentations
by guest speakers on subjects of current interest to students, and a
special performance by the Navy Show Band.

With one hundred and thirty prospects in the
"Dusty Dungeon", the Braves went to work for
their basketball season. As the dust cleared fifteen
ballplayers emerged. They heard about such things
as Clearing out. Draw Charge, High-Low, Point
Zone, Stack Man, and Sunday. Saturdays, Thanks-
giving, and Christmas were spent with pounding of
the "round ball" and some of the guys talking
about Pride, Reacting, and playing with the heart.
Do You Want It? The players did and finished the
season as Tournament Champions and just six
points from a perfect season.
